The whole thing is still surreal to me, that I would even be asked to work on something so large and important!  The whole thing came together extremely quickly (especially for 7 discs / 8 hours of mu

This set is the best album I have ever bought. It’s still unreal to me that all of my favourite music from my childhood is newly remastered and released. I’ve been looking forward to discussing every

Williams wrote that music for the deleted Sir Cadogan scene.  The cue was then tracked into two different spots in the final cut, one of which was artificially slowed down.   The little 10 s

Maybe much of the confusion is linked to Williams initially scoring a wrong cut of the film? Since it only became apparent during the actual recording of the score, I'm sure Williams and everybody else had to work like lightning figuring out what to do, perhaps resulting in some weird titles for the rewrites? 


Unfortunately I can't find the original link about it, but I know I've posted it before.

Completely pointless post. I finished watching HP2 and just wanted to repeat how awesome these scores are. Now, more than ever, I'm wondering what a POA score for Columbus would have sounded like. It's so sad all the thematic development stops here.

It would have been a bit more original than CoS due to the free schedule but still be far less than the Cuaron score.

There would've probably been concert arrangement style themes for Sirius Black and the Dementors (who would've looked more like the standard "flying ringwraiths" design of the books)

Isn't Sirius' theme more of a motif? I struggle a bit to see a full concert piece coming out of that.

I think he is saying that there would be a totally different theme if it was a Columbus film, that would get a concert arrangement.

Incidentally, for anyone here who enjoys the films' production design, I've been working on a 3D model that explores the changing designs of Hogwarts. Feel free to check out my blog if you're interested: https://hogwarts4d.home.blog


That's so cool! I will definitely dive into your blog, since I'm both a rookie Blender user and hopelessly obsessing over the changing designs of Hogwarts in the movies. Thanks for that!

I'm late to this party - any info when this is back in stock?



It just came back into stock 2 months ago, on February 2nd, which came with this big notice on their home page



500 units of HARRY POTTER – THE JOHN WILLIAMS COLLECTION (7-CD BOX SET) is coming back in stock and will ship out later this month. Order yours now!


By February 7th, those 500 were all sold, and the title is now "Temporarily Out of Stock" until the final batch arrives.


As for when that batch could arrive, on that same day, MV posted this:



If all goes well that 2020 backlog of delayed projects will be unclogged soon and a wealth of top titles will be seeing the light of day soon.


In the meantime we will do our damnedest to get more Harry Potter sets produced. It's not sold out. I repeat ITS NOT SOLD OUT...just OUT OF STOCK. Its just a pricey endeavor to make the packaging and manufacture the 7 cds at a third party finished goods rate, but we should have some more in stock by Summer.


I think Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea 4 cd set is getting low though and that WILL BE SOLD OUT once they are gone, so if you want one, now is the time to buy.


There is a slight delay on The World is Not Enough. The plant can't seem to find the paper so we are having more printed up now. Look for that to start shipping by months end. Same with Romancing the Stone and Invaders...delays on those have to deal with an industry wide short supply of poly-carbonate materials at the cd plant for the moment.


We hope to have some new releases first week or two of March. After that, fingers crossed, a great flood shall wash upon the soundtrack marketplace unlike ever before...at least for a period of time.

Title it "Themes from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" 


And make it the suite from 49 secs to 4:40 in the end credits track below. And that way you have a perfect concert suite - 


Good idea - but once change is that I'd add Buckbeak's Flight to the end, just after the WttP crescendo - it provides the uplifting home run, just like Hedwig's Theme does. I mean, the ending isn't as strong, but you can't have everything for a suite that's not custom-composed.
